In a Twitter thread, the mother-of-one revealed all her fitness secrets by sharing her diet tips, easy-to-make recipes and workout routine.

“A few people have asked me to share examples of some of the easy meals I make at home regarding my diet. So here are a few coming up,” she began the thread before sharing pictures of her healthy meals and giving tips on meal prepping and portion sizes.

And while clean eating is definitely the way to go, the actress advises that this should be paired with some exercise.

“Also, it’s good to pair good eating with working out. You don’t always have to go to gym. You can run or skip for cardio and do resistance or HIIT training at home,” she suggested.

What about drinking alcohol you may wonder? Well, Samkelo suggests you stay away from the percentages or you reduce your intake by getting creative with your alcohol choices – just like how she occasionally dashes her whiskey with water.

While exercise and eating clean are essential components to maintaining a healthy ‘summer body’, here are three more tips that will help to keep fit.

1. Hydrate – Drinking water has many benefits for the body and is essential for one’s heart health. Speaking to , sports medicine physician, John Batson revealed how one can measure whether they are drinking enough water or not.

“The easiest thing to do is pay attention to the color of your urine. Pale and clear means you’re well hydrated. If it’s dark, drink more fluids,” he said.

2. Get enough rest – According to people who get a good amount of sleep are less likely to get fat, tend to eat less calories and can maximize athletic performance.

3. Focus on the core – A flat stomach is definitely one of the goals when trying to achieve a summer body and while strengthening the core can result in great looking abs, suggests that working the core will help keep your entire body together as a strong core is important for performing any physical activity.
